Serial killer movie starring Metallica’s James Hetfield set for Sundance Film Festival


In February last year, it was announced that Metallica’s James Hetfield would make his debut acting role in a new film about serial killer Ted Bundy.The vocalist and guitarist will play the role of Officer Bob Hayward alongside Zac Efron and Lily Collins in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile, which was directed by Joe Berlinger – the man behind the camera for Metallica’s Some Kind Of Monster.It’s now been revealed that the film will receive its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, which will take place in Utah between January 24 and February 3.A synopsis of the film reads: “Ted (Zac Efron) is crazy-handsome, smart, charismatic, affectionate. And cautious single mother Liz Kloepfer (Lily Collins) ultimately cannot resist his charms. For her, Ted is a match made in heaven, and she soon falls head over heels in love with the dashing young man. “A picture of domestic bliss, the happy couple seems to have it all figured out… until, out of nowhere, their perfect life is shattered. “Ted is arrested and charged with a series of increasingly grisly murders. Concern soon turns to paranoia – and, as evidence piles up, Liz is forced to consider that the man with whom she shares her life could actually be a psychopath.”Metallica, meanwhile, will return to the UK and Europe on the next leg of their WorldWired tour from May, while fans can vote for the best Metallica song of all time in our new online poll.
